Thanks for your ideas!!
When my boys were babies we all slept in a full-sized bed. My husband is 5'11" and I'm 5'7". When we finally bought the king it was such a relief!
Space-wise this has worked fine...but nursing both of them through the night? That is another matter.

I could hardly sleep at all when DD was an infant if she was in bed with us, but seem to have little problem keeping DS close and safe and sleeping as well.
We have a queen bed and an arm's reach cosleeper and it is working really well for us. In the first few days he spent a lot of time on my chest but now he seems to overheat if we do that for too long, so sometimes he fusses, I put him down in the cosleeper and he is more comfy there.
This time we have a king size. But we also have a 3 year old who isn't convinced that she isn't cosleeping anymore. Tee hee. We'll see how that works out. In a few days, I hope.

I had a girlfriend who's bedroom was small, they put a king futon on the floor and fit alot better as they were able to walk on it, etc. Not sure if your husband at 6 4" would want to lay down and get up off the floor that long though
